We’re still hopeful that Christmas is going to be back with a bang this year. Which means with any luck, we’ll get to celebrate with our friends at real life parties instead of through a screen on zoom. And a return to dancefloors, dinner parties and social gatherings is going to require some epic outfits. So with that in mind, here’s 4 festive style ideas for every event you’re likely to be invited to over the holidays.
Your Work’s Do
When it comes to your work’s Christmas party, you're probably going to want to avoid anything too skimpy. But that doesn’t mean you have to go for something dull or frumpy either. Not when a glam jumpsuit can make a real impact. We’re talking sequins, velvet or a jazzy pattern that will make you stand out amongst the jeans and nice tops.
Most jumpsuits can easily be dressed up or down to suit your style. For a more relaxed look, team with a pair of trainers and a pair of huggie hoop earrings. Or for something dressier, add some killer stilettos and a pair of our square and round CZ stud earrings.
The Dinner Party
A loose-fitting slip dress is our outfit of choice for a glamourous dinner party. Think sexy silks or satins in rich festive colours like burgundy or forest green. Team with plenty of gold jewellery like layered necklaces and a pair of our Chunky Creole hoop hypoallergenic earrings.
Rock chicks can make this look their own with a pair of chunky boots and a biker jacket. Or all you glamour pusses can opt for a cropped faux fur coat and kitten heels instead.
The House Party
House parties are all about letting your hair down with your favourite people. So throw caution to the wind and be as daring as you want with your outfit choice. Dig out the miniskirts and mesh tops and get ready to party!
Whatever house party look you go for, make sure you team it with a pair of comfy shoes rather than heels (in preparation for some late-night boogieing!)
The Black-Tie Ball
Navigating a black-tie dress code can be a slightly stressful affair. For men, it’s pretty straightforward. Throw on a good quality tux and you’re sorted. But for women, it can be a bit more ambiguous. Don’t worry though. We’ve got you covered with these pointers.
Black tie events usually require a floor-length dress or gown. But you can add personality to this with some subtle cut outs, interesting necklines or a seductive split. Colour choices tend to be darker and more reserved but you could always go for a stand out red if you like making a statement. It is Christmas after all! And lastly, keep your jewellery minimal with a pair of elegant silver drop or sparkly stud earrings.
Whatever you’re doing this Christmas, do it in style and with the people you love. You deserve it!
